language, they have different religions. >> rose: so when you left la scala, why did you leave? >> as i said, i was in la is a la for 19 years, scala for 19 years, even longer than -- >> and my relationship with the orchestra and the chorus has always been for 19 years perfect. then when i had a fight with the administration, let's say, because i don't want to indicate this or that person, and everything became political, and in italy, when somthing becomes political, and the controversial, politically speaking, then the only thing that you can do is to leave. but 19 years are a part of my best years in my musical career, so i said, you know,, to explain exactly details of what happened is impossible, and the newspapers generally made a mess of the entire story, because they didn't know exactly the details. they thought that the orchestra was against me, but this isot true. >> rose: not true. >> absolutely not true i never had a fight with an orchestra in my life. but there were reasons outside of the artistic field that created a situation and we couldn't communicate anymore. we had co

the backboards plots of the terrorists who do not represent libya, i do not represent islam. islam is a religion of peace and love, just as president obama said from this rostrum to days ago. our future will be a future chartered by people like chris stevens, not by people like his killers. in this context, i would like to express my condolences to the libyan people and to misrata for the death of a man who is joined some long list of martyrs five days ago. mr. president, i would like to express my deep appreciation for the actions of the administration following that moment of depression -- of distress. my mission is to pursue the perpetrators and bring them to justice. we shall make our utmost to strengthen the necessary protection granted to diplomatic and consular missions, and to ensure the safety of their employees and facilities. this painful event in no way expresses the feelings of the libyan people as people of moderation, hospitality, and gratitude. the large demonstrations condemning this lascivious crime in the city of van ghazi -- benghazi and other libyan cities is the true refle

according to our religion but you know, growing up in a very strict irish catholic family, i was raised to believe that our goal in life is to do good things and get to heaven. so i thought early on i would become a nun because it would ensure my, you know, straight go to heaven pass, and my mom was a hairdresser when i was younger and she used to do hair for the convent, and when she brought me over there one day, the nuns asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up. i said a nun and a mom, and they said oh, that's not possible, and i immediately tapped out of that and decided to be wonder woman instead. that was my goal. >> so how long did the nun thing really last in reality? >> it lasted about three or four years. >> real? >> i did mass in my house, literally, let your spirit come upon these gifts to make them holy so they can become the body and blood of our lord jesus christ. before he was given up to death -- i mean -- >> you never sounded sexier to me as an irish catholic boy. >> i loved performing so that's the only script i really knew and i played the priest, i was the nun, i

200 years, that in order to preserve freedom and liberty, including the freedom of religion, you have to allow people to say and do things that you find abhor ant. and you can't react every time you are insulted. i means that's the first thing we all have to teach our children. and i don't mean to compare the people rioting against news cairo and anywhere else to children, that's not the point. the point is if you live in a shame-based society where you think nothing good is going to happen, the temptation is to wait for somebody to say something you find offensive and you can lash out against it. but free people, mandela, absorb destructive things and refuse to be destroyed. there's a child here, i mean not a child, a young woman, i don't know if you have seen here. the disabled chinese lady, you have seen her, right. >> rose: yes. >> i went to her village, i was in her home, in 1998 as president. its with a great honor, right, not for her. her parents were required to take her upstairs and hide her, leave her on the bed upstairs because they live in a culture that thought there was

traditions. but there is a fundamental difference between israel and extremism. islam is a great religion peacefully over a billion people in our world. it's the most extremism is a warped political ideology supported by the minority that seeks to hijack this great religion to gain respectability for the violent objectives. it is vital that we make this distinction. in turkey we see the government with fruits and islamic values but one with democratic politics and open economy and responsible attitude to supporting change in libya and syria and elsewhere in the region. i profoundly believe that the same part is open to egypt to nisha and their neighbors and we must help them take it. democracy in islam can flourish alongside one another. so let us judge governments not by their religion, but how they act and what they do and let us in the region in a space government in egypt and tunisia said their success can strengthen democracy, not undermine it. mr. president, there is no doubt that we are in the midst of profound change and that many uncertainties lie ahead. the building blocks of de

are engaged in war and we adopted a political theory meaning that terrorism has no religion and it is a common threat regionally and internationally. it requires an necessitates a common effort to fight terrorism within the frame, along with what we did to cement the corporation in combating terrorism with more than 40 nations, and that included all aspects in intelligence exchange, activities, and how best to combat and deter and have a bilateral meeting with those nations. this theory that has been adopted by the yemeni government comes with the understanding of terrorism and today it is not an isolated problem to a specific nation. it is, rather, an international threat from the political, social, economic levels. this will reflect the fierce willingham-- fears that the threats are diversified and transnational. there are lives that they're been lost. we have suffered and we are still suffering from terrorism and we have played a lot with blood and life. many of the public institutions, and it affected tourism. and now most of the hotels in yemen are closed. there are no foreigners at all.
